U.S. stocks may frustrate investors looking to buy at lower prices. The S&P 500 Index’s performance on a total-return basis, including reinvested dividends, in post-World War II election years shows as much. Retreats of 10% or more, sing a commonly used threshold for corrections, occurred only half of the time during those years. They include 2008, when a financial crisis and a recession weighed on share prices, along with 2012 and 2016.
